Countess, 26, was taken in the sixth round out of Auburn in 2016 by the Eagles. He was cut loose coming out of the preseason and later signed on to the Rams practice squad.
The Eagles later claimed Countess off waivers from the Rams before waiving him during the preseason with an injury settlement.
In 2018, Countess appeared in all 16 games for the Rams, recording nine total tackles, one interception and two pass defenses.
